We used to play for silver,
Now we play for gold,
So fork it over if you want in,
Even though we're old.

Sorry - I guess I got used to sneaking in for free or paying $10 for a show. In hindsight, perhaps I should pay twice as much......

A lot of poor man make a $5 bill
Keep him happy all the time
Some other fellows charge a c-note a show
Yet we still hear them cry-in...

Will you go Buddy?
Will you go down?
See The Dead at Shoreline?

(The answer, my friends, is blowing through my empty pockets...)

while I'm not interested in seeing these guys at this point of their musical career I'll never complain about price. They can charge what they want. I never paid anything above 40 face value for any of their tours and they set up their own ticketing system to make sure people like me got great seats. It's just the times.

Morning direwolf -

A bit steep when you throw a 3 hour drive each way on it.

Most of what I go see now is still in the $10-25 range. Being on the guest list for a lot of shows is also nice so I shouldn't complain. But for some perspective, I paid $135 for a 4 day pass to Floydfest out in Floyd, VA. (Great festival, BTW - lots of bluegrass, but many other acts as well) For that price I get early entry to set up my campsite, a vehicle on site and the opportunity to see 4 days of great music. Last year there were 75 bands - we saw 52 shows over a 4 day stretch - less than $3 an act. Standing three feet away from Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper watching Michael Cleveland work absolute fiddle magic was mind numbing (as was the Floyd County moonshine we smuggled in. Lee Highway Blues - holy crap can that guy tear up a fiddle.

Floydfest also has a great series called "Under the Radar" which debuts a lot of new bands. Pretty cool to see a bunch of young kids from Nashville step out on a stage following David Grisman and get to play in front of 9,000 people.

If I am going to spend a relatively large sum - I'll stick to festivals like Floydfest.

You outta come - we have plenty of room in our campsite.

hey mando :)

in a way, i hate to say it..... but that sounds like a hell of alot more fun than the current Dead tour. new, fresh, vibrant music as opposed to decrepitude, walkers, and Immodium AD - hah!!!

maybe i will take you up on that invite one day - though i think i will need a bit more sobriety under my belt to comfortable hit a 4 day bluegrass fest etc

:)

dire - I hear you. After 24 years in the service I accumulated a few demons that need exorcising and just about every day presents a challenge in the form of a reminder of time and opportunity lost. I think I understand a little of what you have gone through.

Anyway - the offer stands open. To tell the truth, we were running around from stage to stage so much in the late July mountain sun, water was the beverage of choice (and necessity).

Shoot, the only 'bad' thing we did was cook up some brats, burgers and ribeyes with a bunch of militant vegans camped next to us. I remember one young lass - her name was Kindred if memory serves me correctly - standing in her hemp skirt, the smell of patchouli oil wafting up, the wind blowing through her hair (albeit on her legs) - lecturing me on the evil of pursuing an omnivorous lifestyle. With total sincerity she asked me if I had any idea how many innocent animals had gone into the formation of the brats we were eating. To which I replied with equal sincerity:

"No, but I greatly appreciate their total committment to the cause."

She did not like that.

freakin hilarious tale there mando (who names their kid Kindred anyways). Hope the neighbors enjoyed the smell of cooking meat :)

and yeah, from the sounds of it - you do have an understanding of things - no doubt (especially the time wasted stuff)

If the boys finally get over this " missing man formation" and start writing new songs with a new (young and unknown) player on lead then I'd feel some excitement...until then, this insufferrable rehashing of the same tunes with very little imagination to the arrangements is surely leading the remaining members (when performing as The Dead) down the road to Has-Binsville. That being said, I'll be at the Spectrum looking for that $40 miracle and hoping that the boys don't make me feel as old as I my age says I am.

$34.50 for lawn at the Shoreline, I can do that and park down the street, I've never paid for seating there anyway.
And the Deadlot will be a blast!
